This film dramatizes incidents from the boyhood of one of America's great practical scientists. Tom's sitting on eggs to hatch them, his early experiments with chemicals and electricity, the newspaper he published on a train, all point up his curiosity, persistence, ingenuity, and his ability to learn through observation. Qualities which were later to help him change the world.
